Depends, cheaper online, if you have aluminum mag wheels? then, only few places will do them due to the thick bead which makes tires hard to get off and on without damage, it you have steel wheels locally I say Walmart.

My Yamaha is a 2011 model and I have the original tires on 3 wheels and still look almost new. I only replaced the back right tire because I let the pressure get low and it wore on the edges. Lesson learned, even though you sit on the left side, take a look at the right side every now and then.

I called the Villages Golf Carts at Brownwood about 2 years ago for a tire. They said, bring it in at 7am and leave it and we'll have it ready by 4pm. They said they can give me a loaner cart while waiting so you can go somewhere. I asked the price, they said about $80 tax and all.

I called Tire Choice at Colony, they have a bad rap for trying to upsell seniors when they bring their cars in, but I figured for this I'll give them a try. They said, bring your cart right in and we'll have it ready in an hour and it's $77 out the door. So that is what I did. I walked over to Fiesta Grand and ate, and when I got back my cart was ready.

Walmart at Wedgewood on 466 Auto Shop would be another good choice, but I'm not sure they have reopened the shop yet, it has been closed during the pandemic.

Tire Choice on Wedgewood is a good location as well. I have 12 inch rims. Not all locations carry this size.

Walmart does not do 10” aluminum mag wheel rims for golf carts.

Rehart. What was the cost. I gotta save at least $20.00 if am going to pull and replace the tire myself. I've done like a couple of others drop off at tire choice and get some lunch.
